A Prayer for Transition

Oh God our help in ages past, our hope for years to come; You have journeyed with your people Israel and we pray you, journey with us now, in this time of Episcopal transition and change. Walk beside us on the road that is ahead, calm our fears, awaken our hope, and open our hearts, as together we seek your guidance. Inspire us, and those appointed to search for candidates, to discern your will for the Diocese of Michigan. May we put our whole trust in you as we look to Christ, the great shepherd of our souls; who together with the Holy Spirit is alive and reigns now and forever. Amen. and ERD will make a donation to a charity of your choice every time you make a purchase on Amazon!  One of the charities is Episcopal Relief and Development.  Sign up at  Note that you must start your purchase at in order for the donation to be made.
